Augustine’s Teachings on Human Nature: DCT

Preview of Lesson Plans:

Hand out A3 sheetaug2

PP: Bubble ‘What can I remember about St Augustine’ – share as class

PP: Research ‘Who really is Augustine?’ – share as class

Go through PP up to Activity

Hand out text books (blue) and A3 blank sheets. Students create a story board with pictures and writing of The Fall

Alien Landing: In pairs one student has to explain the Fall to the other in one minute. The other student afterwards then asks two questions (see “But Miss it’s the end of the lesson!”: Perfect Plenaries for guidance on this activity).

Note: I have kept my lessons very simple. I have used the power point as the main structure and kept the activities to one A3 sheet. Based on student responses, difficulties, discussions and ideas I will adapt and alter the lesson/ activities/ power point accordingly.

If you would like a Lesson Pack with activities and worksheets, that complements the power point, please click on the image below:


You can own a copy of the power point. Just click on the image below to download this product quickly and safely, so that you can adapt it for your students year on year (for a small charge).



To view all available teacher and student materials click on: R.S Resources. This digital goods store will allow you to quickly and safely download all materials (for a small charge). These include PowerPoints, lesson packs (with all worksheets and activities) key knowledge test packs (with answers), essay writing skills pack, revision packs and much more. I am always uploading new materials (as and when I cover them with my students) so it is worth checking regularly. These are all the materials I use with my own students, so they are tried and tested and available for you to download, keep and adapt over the years.

The Devil’s Advocate [DVD] [1997]

This film makes interesting links to the ideas of temptation, also leads nicely into the next topic on death and the afterlife because of the links to hell and punishment.
